Throughout the sessions we address the components that are necessary for teachers to know in order to be successful in teaching reading. In each session, there is a direct connection to the New 2022 Alberta Education English Language Arts and Literature Curriculum Learning Outcomes, Knowledge, Understandings and Skills and Processes.

Teaching reading is not overemphasizing only one component of reading.  It is about being proficient in all of them and knowing how to apply pedagogy and effective instruction while teaching these components and to meet the needs of all of the students sitting in front of us.
